School upgrade and design services

School Upgrades

September 18, 2012

We have provided consultancy works for a group of London schools, including rewiring works, mains upgrades and renewable technology advice and design services.

The schools require all their works to be done out of hours and in school holidays, therefore they have to be planned and performed within strict time frames as well as budgets.

Due to the gradual expansion of one of the schools, and old electrical services tripping,  a new substation connection, mains upgrade and new metering was required. Cityzen designed, procured and oversaw the works.

The works were performed over a three week Christmas break period, and included a very tight schedule of ground works, electrical works and redecoration to ensure the school would be open for the first day of term.

More recently we designed and oversaw installation of a large PV array to help the school cut their base load running costs and their carbon emissions.

This has helped the school with their commitment to reduce their impact on the environment and gives them a practical and educational discussion piece, which will leave a lasting impression on the children.

In 2015 we have been part of the team developing an administration block and undercroft within the school, inclusive of all mechanical and electrical services. As part of this we had a very tight brief to design and get contractors to change over boilers and install an new innovative lighting scheme. the development included a green wall rainwater harvesting, LED lighting throughout. We also developed the BREEAM pre assessment and energy modeling.
